I found Lorenzo's voice through this writing experience. People really do like to laugh at themselves; some just have to be taught how. I enjoy a gut-wrenching laugh more than a hot fudge sundae. Save the calories and delve into a childlike state with sweet, leg-slapping episodes.
Lorenzo has quite a reputation to live up to, and he takes it seriously. His stories are frequently requested:
"Please bring me a Lorenzo story. I need to laugh."
"My bags are packed for my hospital stay; do you have a new doggie story for me?"
"Reading about Lorenzo's adventures takes my mind off my pain."
What could be a better motivation to write than to heal heart and body?
Sandra believes people can learn from dogs. "My serenity comes from having a personal relationship with Christ, a sense of humor, and following my dog's lead. We humans spend our lives running and wanting. We can learn to relax, reflect and enjoy the moment. A dog's life is a pretty swell life!
Sandra Wilks resides in wine country, Temecula, California. She grew up in Coastal San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe, and attended San Diego State University. After having raised two children as a single parent, at age fifty she moved with her horse, cat and dog to the Cascades of Oregon, not knowing a soul. She established the Silver Living Ranch on acreage and surrounded herself with domestic and wild animals. She enjoyed horseback riding in the forest. River's Edge Realty and Western Art Gallery were born after she purchased and refurbished an older building overlooking a river. She then founded a community newspaper. She remained in Oregon twelve years living her dream life.

"Communicating with animals is in my blood. They seem to recognize a friend in me-they trust me. I believe it's based upon mutual respect. Our kinship began in my childhood when I shared my sorrow and joy with my beagle and pony. On the Silver Lining Ranch I shared my affection with: bantams, geese, horses, goats, dogs, cats and others. My grandfather, an accomplished equestrian, founded a private zoo."
She is an optimist and shares her love for life with those around her. Her endeavors include: volunteering, watercolor and oil painting, photography, music. She teaches art to children and seniors. This compilation of sweet stories is offered to bless people who need a little sunshine in their lives. They express her belief in obeying promptings to follow God's will. His hand and heart are clearly in her tales and life.
Her stories are always encouraging. Sandra reminds complainers, "Bored people are boring. Put a smile on your face and look for the sunny side. If you look, you're sure to find it."
